ITV Has made a preview for this Christmas’ DOWNTON ABBEY Special and although Season Four will not air in the US till January 2014 I don’t think there are many spoilers in this preview for those that haven’t seen that season yet…. although you might feel jealous you’ll have to wait till February 2014 to see this.

It doesn’t look like it takes place at Christmas but does show us the return of Shirley MacLaine in her return as Cora’s mother Martha Levinson and of Paul Giamatti as Cora’s brother Harold.

Downton Abbey Christmas Special airs Christmas Day on ITV in the UK.
